So, glancing through the 2018 New Features page I saw this;
Which I thought, really cool. Using the custom .ini tag "HideRootWindow=True" and ensuring proper handling in the VI is okay, but it would be swell if there was a single method internal to LabVIEW that handled all this.
However, I can't find this method anywhere. Searched all over the VI/Application/Front Panel methods, searched the help file, searched the forums. Can't find it anywhere. Has anyone used this yet, and if so, where is it?
HideRootWindow actually hides the icon from the Task bar in Windows. This means it runs as a hidden executable, so, no front panel visible and no icon. In our case we use it for our thin clients and all interaction is done through System Tray icons and notifications.
